So you have a Hone and it's great - no more lost keys! Well, as you know Hone is hackable, and today we're releasing source code and a demo utility to demonstrate that extensibility.
Hone Prox is a utility for OS X that works with your Bluetooth 4.0-equipped MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or Mac Mini, which includes all models released after mid-June 2011. Here's what it looks like:
Hone Prox allows you to launch applications and Automator scripts when you approach or leave your Mac. Here's how to set it up:
You can get way fancier with your actions than my simple setup - for example, you could use Hone Prox in conjunction with Automator and home automation via IFTTT to turn the lights on in your house with a WeMo switch, or send a tweet to your significant other that you're home.
With our successful Kickstarter campaign complete, Hone is now available for retail sale! You may have bookmarked our Kickstarter, read about us in the media or seen our flash sale at Grand St., but however you found your way here, welcome. We think Hone is the best Bluetooth low energy keyfinder around, with a clarified, easy-to-use app, six month battery life, a one-year hardware warranty and email support - and Hone is assembled in the United States.
